"I'm in agreement with FloridaGull, Seagull makes a phenomenal mid priced guitar. I have been beating on a Performer series mini jumbo for almost three years now, and it's a work horse.
I will say that I personally never fell in love…"
"IMHO, if you want to go used, see if you can find a used Seagull Artist Mosaic. All-solid construction - cedar topped, mahogany back and sides - cedar will provide the warmth you are looking for. Also, check this out -…"
"I personally love Jumbo's and have many of them from different companies. I still have to plug the Epiphone EJ-200 for all round balanced mellow sound. I did put my own pickup in two of mine. I have the regular EJ-200 for…"
Greetings!I have a bunch of nice acoustic electrics I play regularly and do love my Takamine EF 341 and 381 (my go to acoustics) but I am looking to pick up yet another guitar and welcome some suggestions to what you thnk I might look at/into: I play out acoustically and have recently begun playing a few (5-7) tunes that are best dropped down a half step so as not to kill my vocals for the night. I am looking for a guitar that has nice tonal balance, a nice neck and sounds warm yet lively…See More
"Agreed. The Beta's are terrific. While many think they are not worth the extra spend over the traditional sm58 I hear and feel a noticeable difference and like that extra clarity, clear, crisp dynamic since (and no disrespect to my…"
"I have Tak siblings with the EF 341 and 381. The 381 has the cool tube per amp in it. I like Martins and Taylor's but have to say therenisnsomething about the Tak sound that seals it for. Pics of both are in my profile."
I play a solo acoustic thing mostly in/at the cafe', pub type environment with the occasional warm weather bar/patio and or outdoor venue like a fair or etc. My set lists are comprised of contemporary and popular stuff from tyhe last 4 decades (from The Kings of Leon and The Foo Fighters to Neil Young and Bob Dylan and everything in between. My guitars used vary but I typically bring/play an acoustic electric 6 string and a hollow body guitar (once in a while I will bring a 12 string too) and…See More
First of all let me say that Chordie offers two versions of songs...one is lyrics and chords, which is what you wanted, and the other is "tabbed" songs. Before I talk about tabs, let me give you a link to a chord/lyrics song:
When you look at it you'll find the chords and lyrics and over to the right is the transpose function I told you about. So the song is in the key of "F" but if you want to play it in "E" or if you want to chord in "E" but capo to the frist fret so you are playing in "F" you just click the button to transpose -1 semitone...
Below that is the tuning function...it defaults to "guitar" but if you click the drop down menu it will allow you to see the chords for various instruments! All this and it's free!
Here's the link to the Hootie songs:
There were four versions of your songs "TIME"...two tab and two chords...here's your Hootie song in chord form:
Now, on to tabs. The tab grid you see represents the six strings of the guitar...so each line is a string with the low "E" on the bottom and the high "E" on the top. The number represents the fret you finger for that note and the little "h" you see between two numbers represents a "Hammer-on." there are various other symbols too. It's a way to be able to "read" and play notes without learning to read music. A lot of people call it cheating, but I am 53 years old, have been playing the guitar by ear for 30 years and ain't about to learn music notation now! I hope this helps! Let me know what you think!
